Greenport Public Restroom in New York by Studio a/b Architects

Public restroom in an existing park (Mitchell Park) for a coastal village on the North Fork, Long Island. Since Mitchell Park was built through a design competition, the restroom was required to match the existing park design. Using the same material palette as the existing park buildings (zinc roof and cedar wall), this restroom was sited with free angles, respecting the existing views and park layout.

The low budget was accommodated by using a simple shed roof form and by minimizing the footprint for the required capacity. Energy efficient fixtures were selected to minimize the running cost. Flood damage prevention was required for the coastal site.

While privacy is essential, avoiding hidden corners was desired for public safety. The use of lattice screen on the approach provided openness to the coastal park, while maintaining privacy. Translucent clerestories continuously wrapping three sides contribute light and openness, while privacy is perfectly protected. The enclosed box is semi-opened to the environment.
